Sonoma Coast Wine

 

The Sonoma Coast AVA is an extensive part of Sonoma County, California. It stretches between San Pablo Bay to Mendocino along the Pacific coast, east to the coastal ranges. The climate created by such close proximity to the Pacific Ocean is that of heavy rainfall, cool winds and heavy fog. Most of the vineyards are planted into the ridges, keeping them as far above the fogline as possible as well as maximizing their sun exposure. 
 
There are certain varietals that respond well to such conditions, particularly Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, but the region is also known for its Rieslings and Syrah. 
 
The Fort Ross AVA is included within the Sonoma Coast.

  • Jordan Cabernet Sauvignon Alexander Valley 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Rich, savory aromas of ripe raspberry, cherry and earthy plum on the nose, lightly floral and complex. Explodes on the palate with juicy cranberry and red currant flavors, a bit of herb, cherry fruit and dry, dusty earth and leather. This is mellow and smooth but very expressive, with herb, fruit and tannic earth in equal parts, good structure a... Read More

  • Jordan Chardonnay 2015

    Snoothrank:

    Rich buttery aromas of green apple, peach, dried apricot, melon and vanilla. Smooth and full bodied on the palate, refreshing with an excellent heft of vanilla bean, toasted oak and fruit flavors of green apple, pear and melon, a touch of lemon as well with a finish of smoky oak. Creamy, zesty, generous and full flavored. 91 pts. Read More

  • Limerick Lane Syrah Grenache 2013

    Snoothrank:

    Similar to my notes a year and a half ago. Very bright fruit--plum, blueberry, red cherry--on the tip of the tongue. Enough tannin to convince me this is wine--not fruit juice--balanced by good acid. Read More

  • Has anyone experimented with Cameron Hughes wines? My neighbor recently ... ... his Lot 568 Pinot from the Sonoma Coast.  Such a silky wine with eye-popping complexity, it gave me the sensation of enjoying rhubarb pie with a side of vanilla cappuccino at once. I was smitten enough to negotiate a few bottles of my own out of my neighbor's fresh... Read More
